Give Thanks!

During this Thanksgiving season it is important to remember the goodness and faithfulness of our Wonderful Lord. No matter the difficulty of our trials and valleys in life, there is always something for which to be thankful. I personally have faced many tragedies, disappointments and losses during my lifetime and the only way I found to restore hope was to begin giving God thanks for the simplest things.

To Be Like-Minded

Not too long ago my husband and I went home to Michigan for our nephew’s wedding. We also spent time with family members on all sides. Two years ago we moved from Michigan to Blue Eye, Missouri. It was a calling of the Lord to leave all and go and learn to be a servant of the Lord.

Now with the escalation in killings by various terrorist groups, that number is increasing daily. Just today I read about Christian women missionaries being targeted, raped and crucified. God help us!
